The best online advertising campaign for the i3 electric vehicle would be best if it included genuine reactions of people test driving the car. They invited 45 teams to test-drive the car in Berlin, London and Madrid and then filmed their reactions.
The test-drivers were people with no prior experience of electric vehicles: couples, families, friends, students and co-workers, aged between 20 and 65. Even a Hollywood star, American actor and producer Josh Hartnett, was also filmed during his first BMW i3 experience.
“We realised right away, after the first test-drives, that we should utilize the excitement of BMW i3 test-drivers for a really authentic and unique form of communication,” said Dr. Steven Althaus, head of BMW Brand Management and Marketing Services BMW Group. That’s because BMW believes un-staged situations and unscripted dialogue “convey the authentic reactions and enthusiasm of drivers and their passengers.”

An investigation found that the driver had seven seconds to intervene before the car collided with a wall. He just wasn’t paying attention and that’s only one of the most common errors that occurs on the road. Read more
